"The Caveman Mystique sits at the intersection of feminism, cultural studies, science studies, and sociology of the body. As such, it would be an excellent monograph to assign in a class addressing any of these or their intersections. More generally, HBE logic, whether we want it to or not, infuses all of our classrooms. In this sense, we all have an opportunity to question "the [exclusive] right of scientists to comment on complex cultural practices" (p. 128) and to insist on the importance of feminist sociological contributions. For anyone who desires to do so, this book is an excellent way to catch up on the politics and poetics of this compelling and pervasive mythology." -- Lisa Wade, Gender and Society, April 2008
"...McCaughey seeks to shift our understanding of science from a practice and methodology evaluated by objective standards to a cultural discourse influences by social relations and power." --Feminist Collections, Vol. 29, No. 3-4, Summer-Fall 2008

IN THE REAL WORLD, far away from women's academia: WOMEN rape men. WOMEN are aggressive. WOMEN ogle men. All at near the same rates and men do to women! This author should look deep into her own soul to discover her own power driven need to blame aggression on MEN, as that is the motivation for rape. EVERY human has these behaviors. Shame on the author for hating men.
This book is interesting, and worth reading, but only if read carefully, cautiously, and critically.
